My boy TJ really liked last night's episode of LOST. And TJ really likes LOST. Seriously, he says so all the time. And behind closed doors, he's calling last night's episode quite possibly the best episode ever.
Do I agree with him? Rarely if ever. I think he's just still high on the adrenaline of the episode being less than 24 hours old, but I also think he's going to let me be the godfather of his children some day.
Anyways, it raises an interesting question: If last night's episode wasn't the best ever (and it wasn't), which one was? It's such a consistently high quality show that it's tough to pick out a single standout.
In my mind, it's hard to beat "Through the Looking Glass", the season three finale. It's a wonderfully paced ride with great action, high tension, emotional impact to boot and so many great moments (Hurley saving the day with the van, Sayid actually being a badass, Charlie's sacrifice, Locke's resurrection, Jack beating the shit out of Ben, Sawyer killing Mr. Friendly, Rousseau beating the shot out of Ben, and so on and so on). And of course the kicker, the big flash forward reveal--how can you top that?
But hey, what do you think?
